Hudson’s helping hand for The Hinge Centre

12th December 2023 | Hudson Contract

Hudson Contract has lent a helping hand to a local homelessness charity in the lead up to the festive season.

The Hinge Centre in Bridlington, East Yorkshire supports vulnerable members of the community who are experiencing financial hardship, food and fuel poverty and those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

According to the BBC, there are currently 110 homeless people living in the seaside town.

The charity provides vital crisis, prevention and maintenance interventions including emergency food parcels, toiletries, liaison with landlords and other professionals, assistance to access the benefit system, as well as a number of weekly community groups which aim to promote inclusion, reduce isolation, improve mental health and provide an opportunity to build friendships and skills.

Alexandra Fishburn, who works in our customer services team, said: “With Christmas quickly approaching, it got me thinking of those less fortunate than myself and how this might not be the most magical time of the year for everybody.

“I wanted to do something to help make life a little better for those in need and came up with the idea of creating a collection point at our office to make it easy for our team to donate foods, toiletries, toys and anything else to lend a helping hand from Hudson.”

Alexandra’s initiative clearly chimed with our colleagues who donated several boxes worth of provisions. Hudson delivered a van-full of goods to the charity at the Crown Community Centre.

Michaela Blackford, Community Support Worker at The Hinge Centre, said: “We would like to thank Alexandra and everyone at Hudson for their support this Christmas. Unfortunately, Bridlington is home to some of the most deprived areas in England, which is why The Hinge Centre’s services are so important to the community."

Our family-owned company provides ongoing financial and practical support to a range of good causes in Bridlington and beyond, including Cancer Research UK, Crisis and Bridlington Rugby Union Football Club. We also sponsor apprentices, paying half the first year's wages of young trainees at construction firms in Bridlington and Scarborough.

David Jackson, founder and chairman of Hudson Contract, said: “As a local business, we feel a great responsibility to help people in our community, whether they are trying to find a safe home, taking part in team games or learning a valuable trade skill.”
